Satellite remote sensing presents a robust tool to address and unravel coupled weather, water and climate phenomena at multiple scales. The temporal and spatial scales of atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic environmental phenomena span the period range from isolated events, particularly extreme events, to that of sub-seasonal variability in the Earth’s interactively coupled atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic systems. There are significant associated implications for human and ecological systems and these have become an emerging topic around which issues of societal and economic value and sustainability can be examined and used for societal response and planning. In this issue, remote sensing tools comprehensively address these phenomena because of the incredible spatial synoptic coverage that they provide. Coupled with environmental observational data sets and mathematical modeling output, satellite remote sensing couples observed and/or modeled environmental processes to societal impacts. Moreover, satellite data used for numerical model validation, are now being assimilated into next-gen numerical modeling strategies, advancing event prognostications. Specific topics include coastal renewable energy assessment; storm induced coastal and inland flooding; flood hazard mapping; atmospheric coastal frontal system detection; African SAL detection; ocean heat content; multi-scale storm phenomena components; atmospheric rivers; and new uncharted uses of different types of remotely sensed imagery for pattern recognition.Prof. Len Pietrafesa

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
